The Guide to Fostering Change to Scale Up Effective Health Services includes two tools: an online course, "Fostering Change in Health Services," offered via the Global Health E-Learning Center of the USAID Bureau of Global Health, which builds capacity of senior levels to support change at local levels; and a manual, A Guide to Fostering Change to Scale Up Effective Health Services, developed by the Implementing Best Practices in Reproductive Health (IBP) Consortium by the IBP/Maximizing Access and Quality (MAQ) Change Task Team. Both link effective change practices with proven clinical and programmatic practices to achieve results. Content includes the principles for fostering and leading change, a 'how-to' process for fostering change, and illustrative examples of fostering change.
